Lesson #136, Sally Goodin' V

Hi Everyone,

Lets take a look at the 2-4 slide using the alternating thumb roll. In one section of this version, I simply took that lick/roll, and moved it up the neck for a 7-9 slide, using the same roll. Once you learn a lick, try moving it around on the neck and listen to the different sounds you can achieve using the same roll patterns. You maybe surprised at what you can come up with.

Also in this video, I used a classic Scruggs' type lick. You will hear this lick a lot in many a bluegrass banjo playing.

Have fun,

About Me

My photo
In 2009, at the age of 60, I decided to learn to play the 5-string banjo. I searched the internet for lessons and struck gold when I found David Cavage's free banjo lessons at Musicmoose.org. His video hosting site revver.com was having some serious problems at the time so I downloaded as many of the lessons as I could whenever they became available. Revver.com stopped operating shortly afterwards and, sadly, Musicmoose.org is no more. I contacted David early 2020 and he told me he no longer had the original master videos and feared they may have been lost forever. This amazing course of free banjo lessons, from absolute beginner to advanced player, is too good to be forgotten, so this is my attempt to get David's work back out there again so that he can teach, inspire and spread the joy of banjo pickin' to more generations of budding musicians, just like he did with me. I've rounded up all the Moose stuff I could find and put it here, so start pickin' and enjoy!-------MooseHerder.
